Particle collision for dummies

With all the talk about CERN’s “black hole” experiment that’s starting today, my youngest son wanted to know what the fuzz was all about, and I was lost for words.  I guess from a pedagogical point of view, it was a good thing that we were both confronted with my limited knowledge, but at the same time, it bugged me.

So, I was over the moon when I read PhD comics’ Jorge Cham report on his visit to the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva.  At least now I’m starting to understand what this is all about.
